Mast Trees Broward County, Florida - Wholesale
When your landscape design in Broward County, Florida calls for tall, columnar, evergreen trees, wholesale Mast Trees from Palmco may be the answer!
Well-suited to USDA Zones 10a to 11 and the warmest areas of Zone 9b, the striking Mast Tree, or Polyalthia longifolia “Pendula,” is an exceptional subtropical substitute for the Italian Cypress.
Italian Cypress trees struggle to grow in South Florida because of the rain and high humidity. The climate makes them more susceptible to root rot, fungus, spider mites, and cypress canker disease, which causes the trees to develop brown patches and die back.
Mast Trees, also called False Ashoka, Weeping Mast Tree, and Indian Fir Tree, have become the preferred choice of knowledgeable landscape contractors, architects and developers in Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Pompano Beach, Miramar, Sunrise, and throughout Broward County.
Natives of India and Sri Lanka, these beautiful evergreen trees are covered from top to bottom with graceful, shiny pendulous leaves. They grow in a symmetrical column to 30 to 45 feet tall and about 4 to 5 feet wide and make an excellent vertical accent for privacy screening between houses and around pools, as living hedges, as wind screens, and to line driveways or avenues.
The Mast Tree’s lush foliage ranges from light lime green to coppery brown to a glossy dark green as the trees age. Leaves remain on the tree in all seasons, almost completely covering the trunk and creating an eye-catching and colorful focal point. In the spring or summer, they also produce star-like pale green flowers that attract butterflies and birds.
These plants have very little leaf drop, no notable pest issues, and require little to no maintenance. They prefer well-drained soil, will grow in full sun or partial shade, and are drought-tolerant when mature.
